In my previous question ntfs-partition-gets-auto-corrupt-becomes-raw-and-unreadable,
I got some answers, but I am still not clear as to how to solve the problem.
To quickly summarize it,
Problem: NTFS partition goes corrupt
OS present: Dual boot (Win8 and Ubuntu 11)
Partition type: Physical, but not bootable, win8 installation and ubuntu hv their separate partitions
I have a dd backup of the whole partition
/dev/sda2 on my other Portable Disk as a file
I tried testdisk repair NTFS partition but got this error
Both MFT and MFTMirr are damaged and thus cannot be repaired using TestDisk
NOTE: I even can't get to
chkdsk /f for the given corrupt partition because I can't open a command prompt for that location.
Is there a way that I can simply format the drive in Windows and then get the data back from the .img backup???
My topmost priority is to get my data back as it was (same folders and sub-folders, without the hazzle of creating them again), as most of it is my code.
